earlier this year, so he still faces the possibility of being returned to jail. >>> the nsa surveillance network can reportedly see about 75% of all u.s. internet traffic. this is according to this report out today in the "wall street journal." they've been investigating. so this report says that the nsa sometimes keeps the content of e-mails between u.s. citizens and then filters some domestic phone calls that use internet connections. the nsa has recently stated that it only, and their word is touches, touches 1.6% of the world's internet data. john jo joe johns, let me bring you in on this one from washington. what does this "wall street journal" report tell us as far as how the nsa is filtering e-mail and internet traffic? >> it sounds like nsa has a second shot. some of this we already knew. the nsa asks the telecommunications companies, brooke, to give it streams of traffic that the telecom company reasonably believes to contain foreign intelligence information. by the way, that's not everything that happens on the internet or on telephones. but it's still a lot of information. the

before this whole nsa story first erupted. is this announcement today in the east room a political necessity for the president? >> i think it is, brooke. i think the president's got to do a better job explaining to the american public why this nsa surveillance program exists. because there are a lot of skeptical people including in his own party among the democrats. why does the united states government need to do all this, go through all these -- have this massive program collecting information on everyone's phone numbers, e-mails. even though there is a process, legislative process, judicial process to make sure it isn't in violation of people's privacy, a lot of americans don't believe that. they're very nervous about it. they toedon't like it. i think the president recognizes and certainly his aides recognize they have to do a better swrjob explaining the necessity of this in the war against terrorism, if you will. i think that's what the president hopes to do. score some points and reassure the american public their privacy is being protected. >> right. wolf and jessica, thank

. >> reporter: an internal nsa audit in other top secret files revealed there were more than 2,000 violations in the recent 12-month period, mostly unintentional. the nsa says when mistakes are made, the agency reports the issue internally and to federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. but the new report raises concerns about that balance of power. the "washington post" reported the chair of the senate intelligence committee diane feinstein wasn't even aware of the audit until it was reported in the paper. feinstein disputes that, but in a statement admitted that the committee can and should do more to independently verify that nsa's operations are inappropriate and that its awareness of incidents are accurate. and the top judge on the secretive court that approves surveillance programs says judges aren't able to independently verify whether the government violates the law, saying they are, quote, forced to rely upon the accuracy of the information that is provided to the court. critics have been demanding more oversight. >> why is the government spying on its own people?

, we do so. >> safe to say that we learned about these threats through the nsa program? >> we have some mechanisms where we can track a phone number or an e-mail address that we know is connected to some sort of terrorist threat. and, you know, that information is useful. but, what i've said before, i want to make sure i repeat. and that is, we should be skeptical about the potential encroachments on privacy. none of the revelations show that government has abused these powers, but they're pretty significant powers. and i've been talking to congress and civil libertarians and others about are there additional ways that we can make sure that the people know. no one is listening to your phone call. >> were you surprised that russia granted snowden asylum? >> i was disappointed. because, you know, even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a law breaker or an alleged law braeaker in their country. we evaluate it and we try to work with them. they didn't do that with us and in some ways it's reflective of some underlying chal

's really very much he can say to the american people other than totally getting rid of the nsa that's going to win over most american's trust. >> are you saying this because there had been details around out before? we've been -- with the fake scandals that don't amount to anything. do you agree with the president this is a false scandal, the nsa scandal? >> i agree in a sense that the way it's been characterized is that this is something that the obama administration sort of created. this is something that we've been doing not too much further beyond september 11th. it's been reported by the media. it's been in newspapers for a decade. and so, in fact, i was watching realtime with bill maher and he read a story from usa today that was back from 2006. and it sounded exactly like a story that was being read in 2013. and so, no. a lot of the things we were talking about was not new. because it's been recharacterized and because it comes on the heels of the irs, it comes on the heels of benghazi, it's a recharacterization of old news, if you will. >> amy, i'll let you weigh in on that. but i w
